Haiku by Chuan Kong Shakya


Even emptiness
Empties itself inside out;
Our cups overflow!

Withering flowers
Die and live, live and die, ah;
Seamless unfolding.....

Looking deeper still
Within; the ancient mirror,
Gone, suddenly gone.

Now this new bright face
Shines in the emptiness;
Thus! All is so clear.

Reverence for life
And the Bodhisattva vow -
Oh these mosquitoes.

No longer needed;
An old abandoned raft
Simply drifts away.

Dripping ambrosia,
Iridescent humming bird;
Glad song in the ear.

A southern cloud
Now covers the whole earth;
Compassionate rain.
